Clapton is God.
在英國,有一個號稱「神」的樂手,就是Eric Clapton,上面那句話就是鼎鼎大名的「克萊普頓是神」。他是一個才子型的搖滾歌手,近幾年把搖滾和藍調結合,我非常喜歡。事實上,他歷經多個著名團體,例如"The Yardbirds", "Derek and the Dominos",前者是英國搖滾天團,無人不知無人不曉,後者是藍調搖滾團。
這首"Change the World"是Eric Clapton單飛之後的作品,我試了錄音室版本和現場版本,我發現現場版的他改的更有節奏,更有藍調的味道,我認為比錄音版好太多了。
歌曲的前奏很長,電及他、貝斯、爵士鼓、電鋼琴等等藍調必備樂器通通出籠,我第一次聽,光是前奏部份就讓我深深著迷,眾多的升降記號使這首歌更幽默風趣,而Eric Clapton雖然已經60歲,寶刀未老,聲音仍舊很有磁性。
除了前奏,曲中間奏也非常棒,不管是和弦、吉他的主旋律或是背後的電鋼琴。間奏總共有兩到三個,第一個是副歌之間,較簡短,以和絃為主,第二個是以顫音為主,可以聽到一直重複的兩個音,由Eric Clapton的吉他彈出,然後最後一次副歌,最後一次和絃,鼓聲、電鋼琴,結束。

不過這首歌曲好像比較感傷,曲子的名稱是「改變世界」,有沒有注意到歌詞中是寫,
If I COULD change the world.
也就是說,這是不可能的事情。




Change the World
by Tommy Sims, Gordon Kenney and Wayne Kirkpatrick


If I can reach the stars,
Pull one down for you,
Shine it on my heart
So you could see the truth:


That this love I have inside
Is everything it seems.
But for now I find
It's only in my dreams.


And I can change the world,
I will be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.


And if I could be king,
Even for a day,
I'd take you as my queen;
I'd have it no other way.


And our love would rule
This kingdom we had made.
Till then I'd be a fool,
Wishing for the day...


That I can change the world,
I would be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.


I could change the world,
I would be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.
